Representatives of the following non-indigenous environment organisations also attended it: Australian Conservation Foundation, Friends of the Earth, Nuclear Issues Coalition SA.

At this meeting a project called ‘Forever Country’ developed a range of culturally appropriate materials that were used by indigenous communities to foster greater awareness of the impacts of nuclear developments on health, country and culture. An agreement was made that opposition to the proposed radioactive waste dump would be a priority and to support the Kungka Juta in their campaign.
